    I LOVE the pic of her holding up 4 fingers as a newborn, and that you remembered it for her 4th birthday. So sweet. Momming the spunky ones is hard but incredibly entertaining. Enjoy!

    Congratulations to her and you! Three was the toughest age for us, four was almost magically easier. I hope you find the same thing.

    So sweet! It seriously doesn’t seem like it could be 5+ years ago that I was reading your post about whether or not to have a third!!

    Adorable! I was just thinking how spunky and full of life she looks as a newborn and then the frown at age 2 just about slayed me! Happy Birthday G. Hope 4 (and 2022 in general) is a great year for everyone.

    Happy birthday Genevieve! She looks all of a sudden so grown up in the last pic – and love the pouting 2yo one. Hope your whole family has a great weekend.

    She’s a beauty and one of the rare babies where I look at them and see the little person they are now. Some babies look unrecognizable from the kids they grow up to be. But it’s something with her nose and eye profile – I feel like I could look at her newborn pic and match her up with who she is today. I feel like my boys look sooo different! Especially our oldest, but I was in labor for over a day and on iv’s a day before induction to manage my bloodthinners so he was so puffy, maybe from all the fluids being pumped into me? That’s my theory at least.

    I think my favorite flashback pic the pouting one, though!!!!

    I hope she had a great birthday weekend!

    Wow I haven’t visited the blog in a while and I feel like she’s grown up so much!! She made that change from toddler to little kid look! What a cutie.
